    I love the second one and last picture the most. It almost looks like a creature out of a futuristic science fiction novel.

    I really like the second one, but I wish the red was a bit more vivid.
    Here's what I did (I also softened the background a little..)

    Thank you! I like what you did with the red, shanstar, looks very nice.

    I've got some other pics that I haven't yet had a chance to edit so you all may be seeing a few more up soon.

    I like the idea of the first! Great subject. We don't have anything like this here in the Netherlands. Not cold enough I think. I would have tried another compo though for the first.

    Yeah, we had an ice storm here. Lost power for 30+ hours, lol. Bright side; well, you're looking at it. The pics I took are the highlight of the storm. If you like them, check [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtBKesQCZ5c"]this[/ame] out. Most of these were taken without the aspiration of being great works of art (more like awesome pictures of something really cool), so they turned out MUCH better than anticipated :mrgreen:.

    Haha! No, we don't have anything like that here! :) Maybe a little ice on the road during winter, but with a little salt it's gone. Funny to see though!

    I have 1 problem with the crop of the first (the third). Namely, the second, erm, ice pod? sure. The second, smaller, ice pod is half cut out of the picture. Thus I don't really know what to look at. I would try a more vertical crop, keeping the both pods and part of the stem. That will eliminate some of the unnecessary background, and establish a better focal point.

    Great DOF and detail on number 2.

    I really like how you can see it start to fade out of focus as it goes back in number 2. That's one of my favorite things about Macro pics.

    i like what you have done here, my only complaint is that the backround is distracting although i dont know how you could fix that.
